Ten Foods That Can Kill Your Sex Drive

Ten Foods That Can Kill Your Sex Drive

If you are planning a romantic dinner that will lead to an intimate rendezvous, experts advise to choose your menu wisely.

“Certain foods lower your libido or sex drive,” Dr. Jamie Turndorf, aka Dr. Love, a leading psychotherapist, media personality, and an expert on dialing up desire, tells Newsmax. “For example, if you are planning to go to dinner and a movie, skip the diet soda and popcorn. Diet soda containing aspartame blocks serotonin production and that crushes the sex drive in both men and women. The acid that lines popcorn bags in microwaved popcorn also trashes the sex drive and over time can create prostate issues which causes even more damage.” (Many theaters don’t microwave their popcorn, so apply this knowledge to snacks at home.)

According to The Daily Meal, in both men and women the hormone testosterone drives much of the human libido. Dr. Michael Hirt, founder of the Center for Integrative Medicine in California’s San Fernando Valley says, “Low testosterone means a lower sex drive.”

Here are some foods (and drinks) that lower your libido;

 

  • Alcohol.  Hirt says booze can seriously interfere with a man’s ability to perform. And it also does a double whammy by lowering your testosterone.
  • Shrimp. That sexy shrimp cocktail may be the victim of pesticide spraying that disrupts hormones, says Turndorf. “Elevated estrogen levels destroy a woman’s sex drive and make men estrogen dominant rather than testosterone dominant, which will lower their libido.”
  • Bottled water. According to The Daily Meal, the BPAs found in plastic bottles can seriously affect virility and fertility. BPAs are also present in reusable water bottles and can also cause erectile dysfunction.
  • Canned soup. Most canned soups contain outrageous amounts of sodium, which can lead to elevated blood pressure and diminished blood flow to the organs, including the penis.
  • Deli meats. Sliced meat from your favorite deli may come packaged in PVC, or polyvinyl chloride. The meat may absorb the PVC, which causes undesirable hormonal changes.
  • Weed. Smoke or eat marijuana and say “sayonara” to sex, says Turndorf. Testosterone levels tank for up to 24 hours after marijuana use or consumption.
  • Soy products. Munching on trendy edamame beans or other soy-based products that are genetically modified can lower estrogen levels in women and sperm counts in men.
  • Fried foods. The hydrogenated oils used to fry many foods may lower testosterone levels, says The Daily Meal.
  • Red Meats. According to Cosmopolitan, some red meats contain added hormones or antibiotics which can unbalance a man’s natural hormones levels if eaten in large quantities.
  • Mints. Surprisingly, the menthol in mints tends to lower testosterone, which in turn lowers the sex drive.

Increase Your Libido

Do you feel that there are times when sex just does not interest you? If you are suffering from lowered libido, or your sex drive just does not seem to be as strong as it used to be, the foods you eat could help you increase your sex drive.

It is important to understand that a decreased libido could be due to medications or an illness, so if the following foods do not help improve your drive, you should consult your doctor to address the problem.

Best Libido-Increasing Foods If you want to use a natural approach to increasing your sex drive, these foods are some of the best options to try.

Onions Even though most people avoid onions due to the smell, sautéed onions are great for increasing libido. Simply peel and dice an onion, and sauté in clarified butter until translucent. Eat the onions with a teaspoon of honey daily.

Dates Dates are high in iron, and help with sex drive and ovulation. Simply soak a serving of dates in one cup of honey, and eat one teaspoon of the date-infused honey each day.

Fish Tuna, anchovies, salmon, sardines, mackerel, and herring are high in omega-3’s, which are important for overall health. Eating these types of fish also naturally increase sex drive and stamina.

Watermelon Watermelons provide amino acids that are important for sexual health, and they increase nitric oxide in the body. These two substances greatly increase sex drive and blood flow to improve sexual performance.

Peanuts Nuts are high in fiber, antioxidants, and L-Arginine. L-Arginine is a natural libido enhancer, and the additional amino acids improve blood flow for more sexual stamina.

Blueberries Blueberries contain antioxidants that are proven to help men with increased pleasure and sex drive. Eating blueberries daily will increase blood flow, pleasure, and erection strength.

Garlic Raw garlic provides a drastic increase in libido due to allicin, which is proven to enhance blood flow. Eat one clove each day for great results.

Pumpkin Seeds Pumpkin seeds are high in vitamins and zinc, which helps with testosterone issues, and sperm production.

Oysters Oysters not only increase dopamine production, they also contain zinc. These substances increase testosterone and healthy sperm when you eat them two times per week or more.

Dark Chocolate Dark chocolate contains high amounts of antioxidants and phenylethylamine, both of which work to enhance your sex drive when eaten daily.
